Control and Visualization on one Device
Visualization screens created in CODESYS can be displayed on a controller equipped with the CODESYS TargetVisu without needing any additional hardware. The screens are displayed directly on the internal or external display of the device.
- Optional extension of a CODESYS controller for displaying user interfaces/visualization screens (additional product component)
- Extension can only be implemented by the device manufacturer, customization of the CODESYS Control runtime system required
- The product component is platform independent ⇒ can be ported to different system platforms (CPU, graphics processor, graphics library, operating system)
- Reference implementations available under Microsoft Windows, Linux® and QNX®
- Version for small systems without graphics library, low system resources and reduced functionality: CODESYS TargetVisu Embedded
- Controller application functions, properties and methods can directly be called from the visualization elements
- Alternative to the implementation on your own controllers: Use of SoftPLC systems from the CODESYS Store, which offer an optional licensing of the CODESYS TargetVisu.
How to use the CODESYS TargetVisu
- Create an object “TargetVisualization” in the visualization manager
- Define the starting object of the visualization
- Automatic download of the visualizations/operating screens together with the compiled controller application as well as display on the controller once the PLC has been started
- You are a system integrator or a user in the machine/plant construction sector or the like:
Use a controller with CODESYS TargetVisu. Millions of CODESYS-compatible single devices and over 1,000 different device types from more than 500 manufacturers offer you a large range of hardware for your automation projects. CODESYS Inside offers a selection of manufacturers that offer CODESYS-compatible devices. Alternatively use SoftPLC systems for standard device platforms from the CODESYS Store. For some platforms, CODESYS TargetVisu can be licensed as an additional option.
- You are a manufacturer of programmable devices:
Purchase the CODESYS TargetVisu Toolkit or the CODESYS TargetVisu Embedded Toolkit to implement the visualization client on your controller.
